Ouch.

A scientific consensus has been reached about global warming?

More than 400 scientists are challenging claims by Al gore and the United Nations about the threat from man-made global warming.

A report by Republican James Inhofe of the Senate Environment Committee lists among the skeptics many current or former members of the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

One Dutch scientist says — "I find the Doomsday picture Al Gore is painting — a six-meter sea level rise, 15 times the IPCC number — entirely without merit."

French climatologist Marcel Leroo says — "Day after day the same mantra — that 'the Earth is warming up' — is churned out ... Without realizing it, or perhaps without wishing to, the average citizen is bamboozled, lobotomized, lulled into mindless acceptance."

The report contends many skeptical scientists keep silent because of fears of retribution.

A spokeswoman for Al Gore tells The Washington Times that 25 or 30 of the 400 scientists may have received funding from Exxon Mobil Corporation — an allegation that an Exxon Mobil spokesman dismissed.


Of course. "They're shills for the oil companies!"

Saw you at evans. All I can say is that if those 30 skeptics were corporate "shills", what do you call the IPCC scientists, "Green Trust Fund Babies"?

Ted Turner has bought and PAID for them.

Hey Farmer. Call it characteristic projection.

Don't forget Billy Clinton trying to get a piece of the action with his "Clinton Global Initiative." There's a lot of people accruing wealth and power over this.
